Google offers indoor maps in India

Published On: Wed, Mar 5th, 2014 | Internet | By BioNews

Global search engine Google is offering indoor maps in India, beginning from Bangalore, at selected locations such as malls across the city to enable visitors to explore them at ease.

“Our indoor maps will provide a view of fashion stores to movie theatres and supermarkets on different floors in malls, which are evolving into convenient one-stop entertainment hubs,” the company’s Indian subsidiary said in a statement here Wednesday.

“As an indoor directory, the maps can be accessed and zoomed on an Android platform with detailed floor plans of the malls on a smart-phone loaded with Google Maps application.

“In some locations, a user will have the option of using the indoor My Location feature to help him/her navigate their way inside. We have worked with partners to bring the My Location feature available for outdoor spaces to several venues,” the statement said.

The application’s blue dot icon will also help indicate a user’s location in a mall with multiple floors, as the map will automatically update to display which floor one is stationed.

“At these locations, a user can also access indoor walking directions to help him/her get to where he/she needs to go quickly,” the statement said.

Google has worked with 75 partners in 22 cities across India to offer indoor maps for top indoor venues.

“We look forward to working with other partners to continue making the indoor maps more useful for people across the country,” it added.
